Flashback: Prospect Pulse On Outfielder Juan Lagares

I thought it would be cool to look back at one of my very first Prospect Pulse pieces that I did here on MMO from about a year ago. It was on the Mets’ current centerfielder Juan Lagares. I remember when I first wrote this, I didn’t think Lagares had a shot at getting to the big leagues until […]

Could Brandon Allen Be A Dark Horse At First Base For The Mets?

“Who’s on first?” Those words have become more than just an Abbott & Costello skit for New York Mets fans this winter. Those words have been somewhat of a rallying cry.

You’ve heard the name before, but 2013 was the first real look at the Mets’ LHP prospect Steven Matz due to him missing significant time recovering from arm injuries. I recently named him as my Mets’ pitching prospect to watch in 2014, as he seems to be on a path to be named a top-five […]

Rising Through The Ranks: Dustin Lawley and T.J. Rivera

There are two Mets prospects that I will be keeping a very close eye on in 2014, and I would suggest other Mets fans do the same. It’s not Noah Syndergaard…it’s not Rafael Montero…nope, it’s not even Travis d’Arnaud. The two Mets prospects everyone should be keeping an eye on in 2014 are T.J. Rivera […]

After Seeing Shin-Soo Choo’s Contract, Was Curtis Granderson A Steal For The Mets?

The New York Mets Blogosphere and Twittersphere was buzzing yesterday after Shin-Soo Choo inked a seven-year deal with the Texas Rangers for $130 million. At face value, it looks like the Mets got an absolute steal when they signed Curtis Granderson for four years at $60 million. The tweets lit up my Tweetdeck, and posts […]

Rising Through The Ranks: Mets’ Pitching Prospect Cory Mazzoni

There has been some buzz this offseason regarding Cory Mazzoni possibly making the Mets’ Opening Day roster as a reliever. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the Mets do have to fill some holes in the bullpen and many have seen Mazzoni as a player that could transition to the pen now that there […]
